Spanish Conjugation Chart
A Spanish conjugation chart is a tool used to help students learning Spanish memorize the conjugation of different verbs in order to grasp Spanish grammar. This ranges from the most simplistic, with common -ar verbs (like the verb, hablar), to the more complex with different tenses (such as the subjunctive), and irregular verbs. Each verb begins with a stem (although with irregular verbs, such as ser, the stem can change). The verb endings change depending on the context (such as first person), and whether there are multiple people performing the verb. There are three types of verbs in Spanish, -ar, -er, and -ir verbs, but Spanish past tense and Spanish future tense, as well as the existence of irregular verbs, can make learning Spanish grammar difficult for non-native speakers.
To make learning Spanish conjugation more complicated, different regions have different words for the plural second person and addressing someone formally. In Spain, speakers use "vosotros" to refer to a single person who is above them in status (such as a boss, parent, or teacher) or who is unfamiliar to them (to show respect), and to address a group of people, as a plural form of "you." However, in Latin America, "vosotros" is replaced with "usted" when addressing a singular person who outranks you or whom you don't know, and "ustedes" when addressing any group of people. None of these three verbs has the same conjugation form, so this is often a source of confusion for students of Spanish. And on top of that, Spanish has more forms of past tense than English does, and some of the most common verbs are irregular, so they eschew the verb endings in a typical conjugation chart and must be memorized on their own.
